Brian Melo updated fans on his blog at MySpace on Tuesday (November 4). The Canadian singer tells readers:
I just finished writing a song with my friend Dave Martin called ‘Dont Wanna Know’ and by the end of our session I was feeling pretty pumped about the song. Sometimes you can just sense the potential of a track once you finish writing it, but on the other hand I have had times that I thought I had a pretty good song than I start demoing it, and I realize that I have just created a stinker… lol. Oh well but that’s the way it goes.
The entire post at MySpace has since been removed.

The latest winner of ‘Canadian Idol’, Brian Melo, has a brand new CD called ‘Livin’ It’, featuring the hit song, ‘All I Ever Wanted’.
Melo spoke with Joe Leary of Vancouver 24 Hours about writing then recording the album right after the show ended in September, hearing his song on the radio for the first time, his brother twisting his arm to audition for the show, having a gut feeling he’d go pretty far on ‘Idol’, getting to meet mentors Jon Bon Jovi and Queen’s Brian May on the program, the ‘Idol’ tour, and much more.
